I had a full face lift 20 years ago and a half face lift 7 years ago. I would like a partial lift from above the eyes to chin excluding forehead now. Can this be done? My surgeon wants to do a platysmaplasty and temple lift only because he does not know what was previously done and what he will find…

When I read your question, I wondered about the state of your neck. Are you experiencing sagging in the neck or a double-chin appearance? If not, I am not sure what to think about the platysmaplasty recommendation that you have received. Your stated goals seem reasonable and a board certified plastic surgeon will be able to discuss a surgical plan with you.

Hi, I'm a 17 (almost 18) year old female. I am content with the size and shape of my breasts, but incredibly self conscious of my nipples. I have 32C breasts that are round (not tubular in shape) but the entire areola is raised above my breast, and the nipple itself is flat, so it just looks like a…

Hello. I have performed quite a bit of surgery on the areola over the past 20 years. Normally I would give an opinion, but I am concerned about your age. Not only are there anatomical issues, but hormonal issues that can contribute to your condition. If you haven't yet, I recommend that you go on a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon and have a thorough examination of the areola. Do not be afraid to ask questions about the anatomical and hormonal factors that could be influencing the appearance of the areola. Always bring a parent with you and make sure that you see more than one plastic surgeon. The anatomical influences will guide you well as to the best course of treatment. You should first hit the internet in order to understand the anatomy of the areola. Best of luck to you.

Hi there, I'm a 23 year old female and I've always noticed my strange double chin. It's like my actual chin is fine but the fat underneath slants to the left. I'm a size 8 but I feel under my chin has always been very loose for someone who's not overweight. I'm not sure if it's lipo I need or one of…

Hello. You may be surprised to learn how often I see patients with identical concerns. The first thing to know is that it is rare that the body will display symmetry between the left and right sides. The observation that your fat is more prevalent or that the skin hangs more on a particular side is actually the norm. The sagging look can be caused by a recessed chin, fat, skin or muscle. Of course, a combination of those conditions may exist, You need a thorough examination by a board certified plastic surgeon in order to know the options that can lead you to success. You have mentioned a few treatment options, but I think that you are starting backwards. Start with a diagnosis and then fit the treatment with the diagnosis. Don't concern yourself yet with how to treat the condition until your are positive about the underlying cause(s). That diagnosis will lead you to your treatment that may be an implant (for a recessed chin), surgery (for sagging muscle), surgery (for sagging skin), a tightening device (for skin), liposuction (for fat), or an injectable such as Kybella (for fat deposits). Because you are so young, your treatment options will have a strong chance of meeting your expectations. Best of luck and get started on your consultations!

Is it possible or advisable to have an abdominoplasty with liposuction to abdomen and hips, breast augmentation and liposuction to my thighs all during the same surgery?

When you would like to achieve great results and when you desire to have a number of body areas treated, it is tempting to insist that they all be performed at the same time. In many ways, it makes perfect sense to decrease your financial outlay, your overall recovery time, your number of surgical visits, etc. There are convenience and cost advantages. What your decision needs to boil down to, however, is none of these. When focusing on quality and safety, you will always win in the long run. Visit several board certified plastic surgeons. Ask each about the extent of work that each procedure requires to get you your desired result. If you have minimal needs for each, you could be in luck. If not, this should start to steer you towards more than one surgical visit. Next, discuss your health history and the safest route to achieve your desired results. If you have any doubts about the likely quality of the results or the health risks associated, do the right thing and stage them. If all seem to give you the green light and it agrees with your gut feeling, at least you will know that you are making a reasoned decision. Schedule your consultations and I am sure that you will have a wonderful experience.
